Nashville: Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus Pass Giveaway

Disclosure: I received free tickets for the circus in exchange for this promotional post.

This giveaway is closed! Congrats to Wendy, Rebecca F., Keith Overby, Steve N. and Becca. Please check your email!

It’s January which means the Greatest Show on Earth is headed to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena!

Once again I am excited to offer tickets to give away to my readers so you can share this fun experience with their families. We took our girls to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for the first time three years ago when they were just 8 and 5 and it’s now a tradition that my girls look forward to, not to mention that going to the circus is a special outing I recall from my own childhood. There’s just something exciting about heading downtown to see such amazing performances and talent all under one roof.

Speaking of talent, the Ringling Bros. YouTube channel features several behind-the-scenes videos. This one is a favorite of my 8-year-old, who loves gymnastics. I’ve always been fascinated at the intense training and endurance that the circus performers must be dedicated to in order to keep up the level of professionalism of Ringling Bros.

I’m giving away FIVE family four-packs of ticket vouchers. Five lucky Middle Tennessee area readers will have the chance to see the Built to Amaze production at Bridgestone Arena Jan. 24-26. There are several show times to choose from, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule.

Get Turkey Day Ready: Win a Butterball Turkey Fryer from Masterbuilt

Masterbuilt Turkey Day Twitter party


Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. We have a lot of traditional family recipes my mom and mother-in-law prepare, including my mom’s amazing cornbread dressing that always features fresh sage from her garden. Thanksgiving is always a time to get together and remember all that we have to be thankful for and to celebrate family and to eat pie. Let’s not forget pumpkin pie. Oh, and football. Wait, and did I mention pie?

I’m hosting a fun Twitter party today at 3 EST (that’s 2 o’clock for all my Middle Tennessee peeps.) We’ll be chatting about Turkey Day and giving away some fabulous prizes, including a turkey fryer! Masterbuilt CEO and cookbook author John McLemore (@JohnMcLemore) will be participating as well.

There’s a great Nashville connection to Masterbuilt’s Share the Goodness contest and party.  This year the Masterbuilt team traveled across the country, visiting non-profit organizations and donating products to these organizations so that they, too, could “Share the Goodness” with others. Masterbuilt visited Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee here in Nashville and Second Harvest volunteer Mike Berger is in the running for a special catered meal cooked up by none other than Masterbuit CEO McLemore himself. Click here for more info and to vote!

If you can’t make today’s festivities on Twitter, never fear. I’m giving you another chance to win a fun Turkey Day prize courtesy of Masterbuilt here on my blog.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post about your favorite traditional drool-inducing Turkey Day recipe (even better, add a link to it so we can all check it out) and you’ll be entered in a random drawing to win a Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer from Masterbuilt (a $139 value)!

For additional entries (and please leave a separate comment for each of these you do):

I’ll select a winner from all eligible comments using Random.org; giveaway closes at midnight CST Friday, November 8. The giveaway is open only to U.S. and Canada residents, ages 18+.
